If your variables disappear after performing valid algebraic operations, and
-you end up with true statement, there are an infinite number of solutions
-you end up with a false statement, there are no solutions.

so in your case the statement 0 = 0 is true, so .....

Choco pies are cookies made from chocolate (c), sugar (s), and flour (f). Chocolate costs \$5 per pound, sugar costs \$3 per pound, and flour costs \$2 per pound. You spend \$50 on 18 pounds of food and buy twice as much flour as sugar.

Write a system of three equations that represents how much food you should purchase.
